  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I’ve been having excessive road noise that changes with speed and turns (a humming that grows to nearly a roaring). I find that it goes away when turning to the right at moderate speed (where the slight weight shift and tilt from inertia removes some of the weight load from the right side of the...

    Hi, First time post, great source of info so far on this site. My daily commute sees me dropping down a steep hill immediately from cold. Descent takes about 60 seconds. Is it ok for me to put the CR-V in 1st gear, and descend using engine braking - from cold? Revs hit about 3800 when doing...

    Mechanic said i need front struts. I’m hoping to do myself. I researched and found Monroe Econ-matic are crap. I read further an learne that even the quick- struts aren’t good. What strut should I get? My cr-v has 150k. Can I reuse the springs? Looks like quality struts don’t come with springs...
  7. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have a 2009 cr-v with 150k. I took it to a mechanic and they said front struts and sway bar links that are causing noise when turning. They said the ball joints are fine. But with that many parts torn out, should I do upper/lower ball joints while in there? Which wears out faster (upper or...

    I am troubleshooting my niece's 2009 CR-V EX-L with auto climate control. Neither condensor fan or compressor come on when A/C button is on (lights up), but both with come on separately if power applied directly at the relay socket (pins 30 and 87). I suppose that both relays could be bad - I...
  10. Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    My CD changer, in the console, didn't work & I replaced the head unit, so it wasn't hooked up, anymore. I decided to re-purpose it, into storage. So I gutted the changer. These are the parts I didn't use. This is what was left, to work with. Foamcore board, covered with felt, & hot glued...

    Does the ignition key, for a 2009, have a chip, so a key cut from a blank, won't start it? Jeff
  13. Accessories
    I bought my 2009 CR-V EX-L AWD a couple weeks ago, to tow behind our motorhome. I wasn't all that impressed with the factory Nav & it didn't have bluetooth/ hands free, so I had a local car stereo shop install a Kenwood DNX 694X. It's a very nice head unit with a Garmin Nav, Sirius (with...

    My factory CD changer (in the console), gives a Mechanical Error code, when I fill it with CDs. It clicks several times, when I close the door, & again, when I turn on the ignition. The CD player, in the dash works, though. Has anyone had this problem & how much did it cost to repair? I'm...
  15. Mobile Electronics
    The jury is still out, on whether I'll keep the factory stereo / nav, on my 2009 CR-V EX-L, I just bought. If I do replace it, I will buy the install kit, to plug it into the existing wiring. How do I know if I have a factory sub woofer? I know it will be a question asked. Jeff
  16. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have a 2009 CRV. The dash on that vehicle has a texture to it. Is there any secret to cleaning it and making it where it will repel dust and dirt? Thanks to all.

    I went for an alignment Sunday and I have attached a pic of the final result printout. The tech said my vehicle right side camber is off, -0.7 degrees to the left and the caster is off, 1.03 degrees also to the left, and could not be adjusted. He did mention something about my struts might be...
  18. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Every time I accelerate or brake the I can feel the left side of the drivers seat trying to move forward or back, it's not locking into the track. The right side is latching correctly. This happens in any position, front to rear, so it's not the track but rather what drops into the notches in...

    I have a Glacier Blue 2009 CR-V with a Nevada title that does not list the color of the vehicle. I don't know if I can just put blue on the NY registration....that can also mean the Royal Navy blue. Can someone with a Glacier Blue, with a NY state title, verify what color their NY State title...
